Computer-aided fixture design (CAFD) techniques have been advanced rapidly that fixture configurations can be generated automatically, for both modular fixtures and dedicated fixtures. Computer-aided fixture design verification (CAFDV) is the technique for verifying and improving existing fixture designs. In this paper, the framework of CAFDV is introduced with two based on two models, geometric and kinematic models. The fixturing tolerance and stability verification will be presented in separated papers.
